Well, it's official, I'm not only the shortest- but also the least educated (notice I didn't say least smart- cause moming takes brains). But isn't he cute? (Jacob Black has nothin on him)

Hunky brother got accepted to Cornell, I know- Cornell!! He's cute and super smart- he got all of the tans- so- easily- freckle-free skin and chocolate brown eyes and hair genes, and now he gets accepted to Cornell! Where's the justice?

I know it may sound like I 'm jealous or something, but actually I'm not. I'm so proud I could pee my pants- like mother hen proud. The sad thing about all of this is that I was hoping he'd consider the U (guilt trip from the Jewish Mother in your head should be beginning right about now Brian) so he could come live here. I would even cook for him.

Seriously- he chose Cornell over my home cooked dinners and cheaper than cheap rent- and therein lies my real frustration- I miss him. I don't get to see him very often (again cue Jewish Mother guilt trip Bri) and now he's moving to New stinking York.

It's going to be a really big deal when my own kid goes and moves away on me- poor children of a smother mother.


  1. Wow--that is such a great accomplishment! I am in that place where I wish my daughters would still want to live at home with their adored Mother SO much that they would go to the local college. Well, I wouldn't really wish that college on anyone--but i miss my girls.

    I may have said this before but "Jewish Mother Guilt"??!! Now I know we are kindred (said in her best creepy stalker voice) spirits. I thought i was the only one who had the Jewish mom voice going on!!! Of course she hates competing with all the other voices in my head--but I'll leave that for another comment.

  2. He's in for quite an adventure, though it will undoubtedly be marred by the lack of your TLC.

    Of course...you can always go visit HIM...


  3. can't believe how much you look alike. that is super cool. coming from someone who doesn't have any look alike siblings, a son that is a look alike to dad, and a little girl that the verdict is still out on. cornell. WOW.
